The cowl on your left is a cowl in handspun alpaca. It felt gorgeous to work up. It is a modified version of the STRAIGHTFORWARD (cowl) by Bethany Hendrickson. For her original version the entire cowl was knit in garter. The yarn had some natural spring to it, just enough. Knit on straights, seamed. Handspun has that rustic look to it.
The red cowl is simply a stockinette tube. My friend Sandy loves red and she says she needs something to pull up while she walks her pup in the winter. Sandy prefers not to wear hats, so this little red tube should do the trick.
In the thankfulness department:
*Thanked Joe our friend for his crepe recipe. It is our go to for crepes. Crepes with low fat low salt ham, broccoli and a smidge of swiss cheese make an delish low carb dinner.
*Thanking the Good Lord for our amazing 18 days of November weather. The door slams shut tomorrow. For Nancy, it already has. I was watching the Weather Channel and they showed Riverton, Wyoming! I saw a bell that looked like it was attatched to a swingset device. I looked for you Nancy! Glad you were in and I hope you were knitting!
We are expecting a 40 degree temp drop later tonight. Let the Season of mittens and cowls, hats and fingerless begin.
